Good to see you back in making mode Steve. I hope things in the workshop haven't deteriorated too much during your absence

Haha! Unfortunately, I'm allergic to hard physical labour, it makes me break out in a nasty sweat, causes muscle aches and general weakness  :lol:

It's been a little over two years since I posted anything in this thread, but today I finally tackled something that has been bugging me all that time -- no handles on the drawers. One of those small jobs I just never seemed to get around to. Today, anticipating working on my lathe project, and wanting to organize the mess that the shop had become after working on the cistern for two summers, I decided that the first order of the day was going to be making and installing the 15 drawer handles I needed.

I used the old Gingery handle design of a wedge shaped wooden bar. Some scrap cherry, run through the table saw with the blade set to about 7-1/2 degrees -- ripping first, then chopping the ends at the same taper yielded a small box full of handle stock. Then I drilled and countersunk the wide face for screws.

Handles, done.

Ha - indeed... but the project to make or buy/fettle a plasma CNC table is currently beyond my meagre means :( Not to mention the space in my workshop is currently rather chaotically taken up with Too Much Stuff...

Hmm... maybe if I knew someone who had a CNC plasma table, and rather enjoyed using it............ anyone?  :lol:

Actually - seriously for a minute, if I bought you the sheet of metal, hows about it?

This is a section of the  Y axis 'flexible' feed pipe . it is 1/4" od 5m long stainless steel and is rolled along a 1m bend as the Y axis slides .

This piece has an almost invisible fracture that shot an impressive rainbow generating stream out the back of the machine , removing most of the paint enroute.

Thought you might like to see what a real waterjet cutter can do with a small piece of aluminium.
Bill,

Nice piece of scrap ally you'll have there!

Phil.
